True-See Allah, known previously as Troy Christopher Watson, is the Director for Community Engagement with the Boston District Attorney’s office who was recently discovered to be a devoted follower and advocate of the former “Antisemite of the Week,” Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI), a Black supremacist and designated hate organization known for promoting antisemitism.
Despite Farrakhan’s antisemitic and hate filled rhetoric, Allah has openly admired him, referring to him as the “undisputed Champion for all of humanity.” Shockingly, Allah’s membership in the NOI and his support for Farrakhan did not prevent Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden from appointing him in the role tasked with evaluating and responding to community needs.
Allah’s career path includes previous positions in the Massachusetts government, such as working in the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department and the state’s Executive Office of Public Safety and Security. However, his background is marked by a troubled past, including a conviction for his involvement in a gang-related shooting in 1989 that left the victim paralyzed. After leaving prison, Allah changed his name and joined NOI, becoming a prominent member of the organization and serving as an officer at a Boston NOI mosque.
This past week, a 2016 broadcast featuring True-See Allah espousing antisemitism surfaced. Throughout the interview, Allah praised Farrakhan for his beliefs and referred to a Jewish individual he encountered as a “Jewish guy who’s got short arms and deep pockets,” perpetuating a stereotype about Jews and their alleged greed.
In a 2022 interview conducted several months after he began his job at the defense attorney’s office, Allah expressed his gratitude for NOI for help towards his pardon, his admiration for Farrakhan, and his career goals of connecting NOI “to the top” via his position with the D.A.’s office, a relationship which he says has been hindered by “the misperception from the Jewish community.”
Making dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about the Jewish people as such or the power of Jews as a collective are clear examples of antisemitism according to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism.
StopAntisemitism’s Executive Director, Liora Rez, was interviewed on Fox News Digital calling for True-See Allah’s removal. A few days later, True-See Allah was placed on paid administrative leave.
